Lightweight geometric forms filling an internal space generally with no applied environmental loads - from wind, rain or snow - but usually a small amount of prestress.

Very lightweight highly curved forms may be used to create exciting geometric forms to fill a void.

There will be no external environmental loads from wind, rain or snow but a small degree of prestress and accurate patterning are required.

APPLICATION OF PROJECT:

Cloud City: An urban ecosystem is a sculptural rendition of Chris Bosse’s vision of a future city - a soaring, stretched membrane cloud anchored to the ‘city’ on the gallery floor by high-rise towers that have been re-skinned and revitalised. A series of large circular forms, doubly curved, is made of stretchy lycra.

The installation is part of a nation-wide exhibition by 12 Australian designers that explores the potential of design in our lives and generates ideas that could ‘change the way we inhabit the world’.
